Symptoms of Cow's Milk Allergy

Cow's milk allergy is the most common food allergy in babies. CMA affects up to seven percent of babies during the first 12 months and induces a range of symptoms of different levels of intensity.

In CMA, the immune system abnormally reacts to cow's milk protein and attacks the protein. This immune response can harm your baby's stomach and intestines.

Common symptoms of CMA include:

  • Colic, which is characterized by incessant crying for more than three hours
  • Dermatitis and other skin reactions
  • Respiratory distress, such as coughing, wheezing, and/or runny nose
  • Gastrointestinal (GI) distress: regurgitation, vomiting, diarrhea, constipation, and iron deficiency

Talk to Your Child's Pediatrician if You Have a Colicky Baby or Suspect Allergy

Moms often to describe common symptoms of CMA as colicky, constipated, diarrhea, reflux, eczema, spitting up, vomiting, bloated, and gassy.

Pediatricians often recommend a different type of infant formula for a baby when symptoms of allergy or intolerance occur. Parent's Choice Hypoallergenic Infant Formula is an extensively hydrolyzed formula,” meaning the cow's milk proteins in it are broken down to significantly reduce the potential for allergic reactions in babies.

Approximately half of all babies on hypoallergenic formula have CMA. A hypoallergenic formula is usually selected and recommended by a healthcare professional after diagnosing an infant with CMA. In fact, physicians are the primary influencer of moms considering hypoallergenic infant formula.
